About this title

Synopsis:

 Although Kathleen Norris’s best-selling Dakota: A Spiritual Geography has brought her to the attention of many thousands of readers, she is first and last a poet.  Like Robert Frost, another poet identified with a particular landscape, she can reveal the miraculous in the ordinary, and she writes with clarity, humor, and deep sympathy for her subjects.

Review:

Kathleen Norris is best known for Dakota, her nonfiction book of "spiritual geography." This collection works much the same territory. Norris finds the sacred in the simple as in the poem "Hide and Seek," in which "A thunderclap/ rakes the field of sleep," and becomes a consecration. "Perennials" is a wonderful poem about the undeserved grace from a neglected garden. As the title suggests, this book balances fragility with power, in form and in content.

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Store Description

I do not have a brick and mortar storefront, listing from home utilizing HomeBase - Nearly all of the books listed are only available single copy, some are new/as new - most are fine or very good - Many unusual/ Collectible/Signed - First Editions/1st printing when possible. I have been a lover and collector of books since early childhood, participating in Metaphysical and Art Bookstore during the 1970's in San Francisco, Ca., Hence, many of the Spiritual, Art and Fantasy/Science Fiction - unusual books are from my private library collection. Art, Beauty, Film, Higher Knowledge - and books that inspire - these continue to come my way and I would love to make them available to others.
